Currently all counselling is online or by phone, and we are pleased to say that most clients are finding this very helpful. As the national restrictions lift we will be offering a blended approach with most clients continuing to have online and phone sessions, but offering some face to face counselling. Please contact us to discuss your situation as we will be assessing each client's needs individually.
We are a high-quality, not for profit counselling and psychotherapy service available for people across Dundee and surrounding areas, working with adults, young people, children, and couples.
We believe we can help people find hope in even the most difficult circumstances.
We believe it is OK to not be OK.
We understand life is often messy!
It's about helping you feel better and function better. You come as you are with doubts, questions and fears, and your counsellor will help you to identify what you hope to gain from counselling, then help you move towards your goals, supporting you as you face the pain and difficulties in your life. Because everyone is unique your sessions will be tailored to what you need using a variety of approaches. There will be some tears and some laughter along the way but you will be glad you made the journey. There is hope for you!
Counselling or Psychotherapy?
In Scotland today counselling is the term generally used to describe an activity where a client is able to talk to someone in a confidential safe space with the aim of feeling better and managing things better, sometimes it includes seeking advice and other sources of help. Psychotherapy is used to mean a type of therapy which deals with the mind, the psyche. The terms can be used interchangeably. We choose to use them together to give a sense of the breadth of what we offer, from simple non-judgemental confidential listening to creative and well researched techniques, all aimed at helping you feel and function better.
The service is available to people of any faith or none and we offer the opportunity to explore issues from a Christian perspective for those who request it. If you have a Christian faith, it is helpful to find a counsellor who can understand your all your life's issues including your beliefs, doubts and experiences.
Our counsellors create a safe space for people to bring the complex messy reality of who they are, body soul and spirit, to be understood, helped and supported on the journey towards well-being.
